Electronics Engineer (Ref:1631553)

There is an immediate opening for an electronics engineer who will have responsibility for developing, commissioning and maintaining readout/trigger and data acquisitions systems for the High Energy Physics (HEP) group.

The successful candidate will have an extensive experience in FPGA programming and/or a good record in designing, building and testing modern digital and analogue readout systems. Knowledge of readout and trigger electronics and data acquisition systems for high energy physics detectors and hands-on experience in developing, building and commissioning such systems would be an advantage. Apart from his/her own work the appointee will liaise closely with other members of the HEP electronics group.

The UCL HEP is one of the larger experimental groups in the country and consists of 20 academics and long-term fellows, with 20 research staff, 7 technical/computing staff and over 30 PhD students. The group is presently involved in a variety of projects representing our interests in physics at energy frontier (ATLAS @ LHC), the properties of the neutrino (SuperNEMO, NOvA, DUNE, CHIPS), dark matter (LUX, LZ), physics beyond the present collider energy frontier (ANITA/ARA, g-2), proton therapy and next generation colliders (AWAKE).

This project is funded by STFC Consolidate Grant for 2 years in the first instance.

Depending on experience the salary will be in the Grade 8 range: £42,304 - £49,904 per annum, inclusive of London allowance.
